Homeopathy is a therapeutic, medical science based upon the teachings of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. By ascertaining the occasion and the fundamental cause of disease, your homeopath utilizes the Law of Similars to determine your recommendation. The Law of Similars is used to help people and animals using minute doses of potentized substances. All 6,000 of these substances come from nature and are used in single remedy application. Homeopathy has been used worldwide for more than 200 years. Remedies are safe and effective when properly administered and can be used by adults, children, infants, pregnant women and animals.
Example of the Law of Similars is the remedy Allium Cepa, made from the red onion. When you cut an onion you may experience burning, itching, watery eyes and your nose may run. Allium Cepa is used to help common colds, hay fever, watery eyes and runny nose i.e. like cures like.
A homeopath access's the whole person, Mental, Emotional and Physical aspects. Each person experiences symptoms in their own unique way. For example you may have a headache that is worse in the morning on rising from bed that is on the right side of the head causing irritability. Someone else would have a headache that is worse at night after drinking hot drinks causing them to sleep. Homeopaths look at each person uniqueness in minute detail to choose a remedy for them.
Homeopathic remedies help to activate the individual's own immune response thereby improving their overall health.
Great success is found in clients who are compliant with the homeopathic recommendation as Homeopathy is a partnership between the client and the homeopath.
